Laughter is good medicine

A good belly laugh really feels good, doesn’t it?

When stress predominates your life, it can feel like you hardly have time for polite conversation, let alone levity.

But several times lately, a good friend has told a story or made a comment that caused us to both erupt in laughter and it was such a release. You know – the kind of laughter that makes your eyes water and your stomach sore.

It was like the plug was pulled out and the stress level suddenly dropped.  While unfortunately that feeling didn’t last for a long time, it was still good to feel for a little while, and helped me rethink the situation and come up with some better ideas.

Go find a good laugh!
